24 hour help-line Counselling and support Training

SASS is a free and confidential support service for southern Tasmanian people of all ages who have been affected by any form of sexual violence. We also provide Redress Scheme Support Services across Tasmania.

Our mission is to work towards achieving a healthier,  safer community in Tasmania, free of sexual harm.

We provide information and support to professionals, and offer a range of training workshops and education sessions throughout Tasmania.

What does this week's budget announcement mean for SASS?

The 2022/2023 state budget announcement yesterday included an increase in core funding for SASS, which will make a significant impact on how we provide and deliver services. In particular, it will enable us to better manage, and maximise, staffing levels to ensure an ongoing specialist trauma informed service to meet the increasing demand.

Ticketed training workshops

Our next round of ticketed training workshops has just been released, with all workshops now open for bookings. Sexual Trauma First Aid, which is one of our most popular workshops, is offered statewide again. We have two new workshops available over the winter months: Child Safe Training Spaces and Teaching Kids Consent. All our ticketed training is open to members of the public, and is tailored to general audiences.
